I decided to update my M4 Superman while I took a break from trying to troubleshoot DSON, and this is the result. The look is deliberately classic, ‘cause quite frankly, the latest rendition of the suit is just a big eyesore for me. I was never really fond of Singer’s version (the codpiece rode too low, for starters) but after seeing what DC and Snyder have cooked up for “Man of Steel,” I was ready to beg the Powers That Be to bring Singer back! I especially can’t stand the new S-crest! One of the most iconic emblems in the world, and they still feel the need to “fix” something that was far from broken in the first place! And no John Williams theme music? I’m sorry, but that tune has become an integral part of the character by now!
So, in a way, this is as much for protest as it is for fun, LOL! All ranting aside, I may yet give “Man of Steel” a chance. It looks like the writing could be good, if I can manage to look past the aesthetic blasphemies.
Great looking Superman you have there.
I agree with everything you’ve said. Hate the S shield they “fixed” in the 2013 movie. It looks a whole lot like the one Superman of Earth-2 wears and I always hated that one!
As for watching the movie itself…I won’t touch it with a ten foot pole. In interviews, Synder said a significant portion of the film will be of a war torn Krypton. Then we have Jonathan and Martha Kent in the movie, which means another origins movie on top of that. Is there going to be room enough for us fans to FINALLY see Superman throw a punch? Yeah…but probably only a 1 minute boss battle in the end, which is a serious turn off and the failure of some movies now-a-days (i.e. Iron Man 2, Thor). Which is beginning to become more and more common. We don’t need another origins film, everyone knows Superman’s origin and we don’t need a recycled villian from a former movie and we most certainly don’t need to see a story about a war torn Krypton. Not interested in that.
And don’t get me started on a recycled villian….again…namely Zod….
